ATTACHING THE LENS CAP / STRAP / ADAPTER RING


Pull the lens cap cord through a strap mount.

LOADING THE BATTERIES


Compatible batteries
h AA-size alkaline batteries (4), or AA-size Ni-MH batteries (sold separately) (4).

! Please use the same brand and grade AA-size alkaline batteries as those supplied with the camera.

How to use the batteries


! Attach the lens cap cord to avoid losing the lens cap.
h Never use the following types of batteries, as this could cause serious problems Outer casing such as battery fluid leakage or overheating: 1. Batteries with split or peeling outer casings 2. Combinations of different types of batteries or new and used batteries together h Do not use manganese or Ni-Cd batteries. h Soil, such as fingermarks on the poles of the batteries can shorten time for which the batteries can be used. h The time for which AA-size alkaline batteries (referred to hereafter simply as alkaline batteries) can be used varies depending on the brand. Some alkaline batteries may stop providing power more quickly than those supplied with the camera. Note also that due to their nature, the time for which alkaline batteries can be used decreases in cold conditions (0C to +10C/+32F to +50F). The use of AA-size Ni-MH batteries is better for this reason. h Use Fujifilm Battery charger (sold separately) to charge AA-size Ni-MH batteries. h See P.85, 86 for other notes on using batteries. h When first purchased or if left unused for a long period, the amount of time which AA-size Ni-MH batteries can be used may be short. See P.86 more information for recovering performance of NiMH batteries.

PHOTOGRAPHY FUNCTIONS

d FLASH
x Auto flash
Use this mode for ordinary photography. The flash fires as required by the shooting conditions.

c Slow synchro
This is a flash mode that uses a slow shutter speed. This allows you to take pictures of people at night that clearly show both your subjects and the night time backdrop. To avoid camera shake, always use a tripod. h Slowest shutter speed Night: up to 2 sec.

! If pressing the shutter button while the flash is charging, the picture will
be taken without the flash.

b Red-eye reduction
Use this mode to make sure that the subjects eyes appear normal when taking pictures of people in low-light conditions. The flash fires a pre-flash just before the picture is taken and then fires again to take the actual picture. The flash fires as required by the shooting conditions.

n Red-eye reduction + Slow synchro


Use this mode for Slow synchro shots with Red-eye reduction.

! The image may be overexposed when shooting bright scenes.


To take a picture of a main subject at night with the background brightly lit, use the (Night) setting in Scene position (P.30).

! If pressing the shutter button while the flash is charging, the picture will
be taken without the flash.

Red-eye effect
When using the flash to take a picture of people in low-light conditions, their eyes sometimes appear red in the picture. This is caused by the light of the flash reflecting off the inside of the eye. Use Red-eye reduction flash to minimize the likelihood of this effect. Take the following measures to make Red-eye reduction more effective: h Get the subjects to look at the camera. h Get as close as possible to the subjects.

Suppressed flash
Pressing the flash down changes the camera to Suppressed flash mode. Use this mode for taking pictures using indoor lighting, for shots taken through glass, and for photography in places such as theaters or at indoor sporting events where the distance is too great for the flash to be effective. When you use Suppressed flash, the selected white balance function (P.42) operates so that natural colors are captured along with the ambience of the available light.

HOW TO SPECIFY PRINT OPTIONS (DPOF)


DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Format and refers to a format that is used for recording printing specifications for images shot using a digital camera on media such as an xD-Picture Card. The recorded specifications include information on which frames are to be printed. This section gives a detailed description of how to order your prints with the FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500. On the FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500, you can specify only one print per image in the DPOF settings.

6.2 CONNECTING THE CAMERA DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER PictBridge FUNCTION


When a printer that supports PictBridge is available, images can be printed by connecting the camera directly to the PictBridge-compatible printer without using a PC.

6.1.1 Using the AC Power adapter (sold separately)


Always use a FUJIFILM AC Power Adapter AC-5VH/AC-5VHS (P.83). Use the AC power adapter to avoid losing power at inconvenient times, such as when downloading photographed images to your PC. You can take pictures and play back images without worrying about depleting the batteries.

Power Supply and Batteries


Applicable Batteries
Conversion lens h In the camera, use AA-size alkaline or nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. Do not use AA-size manganese or nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries in your FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500 because the heat created by the batteries could damage the camera or cause it not to work. h The life of alkaline batteries varies between brands. The life of batteries you purchase may be shorter than those provided with the camera. h Do not use new with used batteries. Do not use charged and discharged batteries together. h Do not use different types or brands of batteries at the same time. h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of time, remove the batteries from the camera. (Note if the camera is left with the batteries removed, the time and date settings are cleared.) h The batteries feel warm right after being used. Before removing the batteries, turn the camera off and wait for the batteries to cool down. h Since batteries do not work well in cold weather or locations, warm the batteries by placing it inside your garments before use. Batteries do not work well in the cold. They will work again when the temperature returns to normal. h Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals makes the batteries charge less reducing the number of images. Carefully wipe the battery terminals with a soft dry cloth before loading. If any liquid at all leaks from the batteries, wipe the battery compartment thoroughly and then load new batteries. If any battery fluid comes into contact with your hands or clothing, flush the area thoroughly with water. Note that battery fluid can cause loss of eyesight if it gets into your eyes. If this occurs, do not rub your eyes. Flush the fluid out with clean water and contact your physician for treatment.

! The adapter ring enclosed with the FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500 (AR-FX3) should be used with this conversion lens.

The adapter rings provided with these conversion lenses (AR-FX9 for FinePix 4900 zoom/6900 zoom/S602 zoom/ S7000/S20Pro) cannot be used with the FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500. ! Only use the tele conversion lens at the telephoto zoom setting. ! The built-in flash cannot be used when the teleconversion lens is mounted. ! Commercially available filters can be mounted on the lens when the adapter ring is attached, but no more than one filter should be mounted at a time.

Notes on the Batteries


Incorrect use of the batteries could cause them to leak, become hot, ignite or burst. Always observe the precautions given below. h Do not heat the batteries or throw them into a fire. h Do not carry or store batteries with metal objects such as necklaces or hairpins. h Do not expose the batteries to water, and keep batteries from getting wet or stored in moist locations. h Do not attempt to take apart or change the batteries, including battery casings. h Do not subject the batteries to strong impacts. h Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed, discolored. h Do not store batteries in warm or humid places. h Keep the batteries out of reach of babies and small children. h Make sure that the battery polarity ( and ) is correct.

Power Supply and Batteries


Using the AA-size Ni-MH batteries correctly
h As a power source in digital cameras, AA-size NiMH batteries are superior to alkaline batteries in several ways, such as allowing more shots to be taken with the camera. However, care must be taken with the way Ni-MH batteries are used if their original performance is to be maintained. h Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long periods can become deactivated. Also, repeatedly charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially discharged can cause them to suffer from the memory effect. Ni-MH batteries that are deactivated or affected by memory suffer from the problem of only providing power for a short time after being charged. To prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them several times using the cameras Discharging rechargeable batteries function. By repeating this cycle several times, the temporary reduction in performance caused by memory or deactivation can be remedied and the batteries can be restored to their original performance levels. Deactivation and memory are specific to Ni-MH batteries and are not in fact battery faults. See P.87 for the procedure for Discharging rechargeable batteries. Do not use the Discharging rechargeable batteries function when alkaline batteries are being used. h To charge Ni-MH batteries, use the quick battery charger (sold separately). Refer to the instructions supplied with the charger to ensure that the charger is used correctly. h Do not use the battery charger to charge other batteries. h Note that the batteries feel warm after being charged. h Due to the way the camera is constructed, a small amount of current is used even when the camera is turned off. Note in particular that leaving Ni-MH batteries in the camera for a long period will overdischarge the batteries and may render them unusable even after recharging. h Ni-MH batteries will self-discharge even when not used, and the time for which they can be used may be shortened as a result. h Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate rapidly if overdischarged (eg. by discharging the batteries in a flashlight). Use the "Discharging rechargeable batteries" function provided in the camera to discharge the batteries. h Ni-MH batteries have a limited service life. If a battery can only be used for a short time even after repeated discharge-charge cycles, it may have reached the end of its service life.

AC Power Adapter
Always use the AC Power Adapter AC-5VH/AC-5VHS with the camera. The use of an AC Power adapter other than AC5VH/AC-5VHS can cause damage to your digital camera. h Use the AC power adapter for indoor use only. h Plug the connection cord plug securely into the DC input terminal of the FUJIFILM Digital camera. h Turn off the FUJIFILM Digital camera before disconnecting the cord from the FUJIFILM Digital cameras DC input terminal. To disconnect, pull out the plug gently. Do not pull on the cord. h Do not use the AC power adapter with any device other than your camera. h During use, the AC power adapter will become hot to the touch. This is normal. h Do not take apart the AC power adapter. Doing so could be dangerous. h Do not use the AC power adapter in a hot humid place. h Do not subject the AC power adapter to strong shocks. h The AC power adapter may emit a humming. But this is normal. h If used near a radio, the AC power adapter may cause static. If this happens, move the camera away from the radio.

Discharging rechargeable Ni-MH batteries


The Discharging rechargeable batteries function can only be used with Ni-MH batteries. The Discharging rechargeable batteries function should not be used with alkaline batteries as it will completely drain the battery charge.
Use the Discharging rechargeable batteries function in the following situations: i When the batteries can only be used for a short time after being charged normally i When the batteries have not been used for a long period i When you purchase new Ni-MH batteries Do not use the Discharging rechargeable batteries function while using the AC power adapter.

Notes on the xD-Picture Card


Image Memory Card
h This Image Memory Card is a new image recording media (xD-Picture Card) developed for digital cameras. The Image Memory Card consists of a semiconductor memory (NAND-type flash memory) to record digital image data. The recording process is electrically performed and enables erasure of existing image data as well as rerecording of new image data. h When using a new Memory Card, or a Memory Card that has been formatted by a PC, be sure to format the card with your digital camera before using it. h When taking pictures using an xD-Picture Card that has been used on a PC, reformat the xD-Picture Card using your camera for best quality. h When formatting an xD-Picture Card, a directory (folder) is created. Image data is then recorded in this directory. h Do not change or delete the directory (folder) or file names on the xD-Picture Card because this will make it impossible to use the xD-Picture Card in your camera. h Always use the camera to erase image data on an xD-Picture Card. h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC and edit the copy. h Do not copy files other than those that will be used by the camera.

The picture can be taken, but the correct brighthess (exposure) will not be obtained.

Protecting Your Data

h Images and movies may be lost or destroyed in the following situations. Please note that FUJIFILM assumes no responsibility for data that is lost or destroyed. 1. Removal of the memory card or turning the power off while the memory card is being accessed (i.e., during record, erase, initialization, and playback operations). 2. Improper handling and use of the memory card by the user or third party. h Save your important data to another media (i.e., MO disk, CD-R, hard disk, etc.). h When storing xD-Picture Cards, make sure that they are kept out of the reach of children. An xDPicture Card could be swallowed cause suffocation. If a child swallows an xD-Picture Card, seek medical attention or call emergency number right away. h When inserting the xD-Picture Card into the camera, hold the xD-Picture Card straight as you push it in. h Do not expose an xD-Picture Card to shock. Do not apply pressure, and avoid bending. h Do not use or store xD-Picture Card in hot humid places. h Clean the xD-Picture Card with a soft dry piece of cloth when dirty. h When carrying or storing an xD-Picture Card, keep it in the special protective case. h The xD-Picture Card will work well for long time, but will sooner or later lose its ability to store and play back images or movies. If this happens replace it with a new xD-Picture Card. h Never remove the xD-Picture Card or turn the camera off during data recording or erasing (xDPicture Card formatting) as this could be damaged to the xD-Picture Card. h The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with the FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500. The recording quality cannot be guaranteed when xD-Picture Cards other than those manufactured by FUJIFILM are used. h The xD-Picture Card may feel warm when it is removed from the camera after taking pictures. This is normal. h Do not put labels on the xD-Picture Card. Peeling labels can cause the camera not to work properly.

Explanation of Terms
AF/AE Lock On the FinePix S3100 / FinePix S3500, pressing the shutter button down half way locks the focus and exposure settings (AF and AE lock). If you want to focus on a subject that is not centered in the frame or change the picture composition after the exposure is set, you can obtain good results by changing the composition after the AF and AE settings are locked. Auto power save function If the camera is not used in any way for 60 seconds, this function turns features such as the LCD monitor off (sleep mode) to prevent battery depletion and the waste of power when the AC power adapter is connected. If the camera is then left unused for a further period, the Auto power save function turns the camera off. This period can be set to 2 minutes or 5 minutes on this camera. h The Auto power off function does not operate in PC mode, during automatic playback, or if it is disabled during setup. Deactivated batteries Leaving an Ni-MH battery unused in storage for a long period may cause a rise in the level of substances that inhibit current flow inside the battery and result in a dormant battery. A battery in this state is referred to as deactivated. Because current flow is inhibited in a deactivated Ni-MH battery, the battery's original level of performance cannot be achieved. DPOF Digital Print Order Format DPOF is a format used for recording information on a storage media (image memory card, etc.) that allows you to specify which of the frames shot using a digital camera are to be printed and how many prints are made of each image. EV A number that denotes Exposure Value. The EV is determined by the brightness of the subject and sensitivity (speed) of the film or CCD. The number is larger for bright subjects and smaller for dark subjects. As the brightness of the subject changes, a digital camera maintains the amount of light hitting the CCD at a constant level by adjusting the aperture and shutter speed. When the amount of light striking the CCD doubles, the EV increases by 1. Likewise, when the light is halved, the EV decreases by 1. Frame rate (fps) The frame rate refers to the number of images (frames) that are photographed or played back per second. For example, when 10 frames are continuously photographed in a 1-second interval, the frame rate is expressed as 10 fps. For reference, TV images are displayed at 30 fps (NTSC). JPEG Joint Photographics Experts Group A file format used for compressing and saving color images. The higher the compression rate, the greater the loss of quality in the decompressed (restored) image. Memory effect If an Ni-MH battery is repeatedly charged without first being fully discharged, its performance may drop below its original level. This is referred to as the memory effect. Motion JPEG A type of AVI (Audio Video Interleave) file format that handles images and sound as a single file. Images in the file are recorded in JPEG format. Motion JPEG can be played back by QuickTime 3.0 or later. PC Card A generic term for cards that meet the PC Card Standard. PC Card Standard A standard for PC cards determined by the PCMCIA. PCMCIA Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (US). Smear A phenomenon specific to CCDs whereby white streaks appear on the image when there is a very strong light source, such as the sun or reflected sunlight, in the photography screen. WAVE A standard format used on Windows systems for saving audio data. WAVE files have the .WAV file extension and the data can be saved in either compressed or uncompressed format. Uncompressed recording is used on this camera. WAVE files can be played back on a personal computer using the following software: Windows: MediaPlayer Macintosh: QuickTime Player QuickTime 3.0 or later White Balance Whatever the kind of the light, the human eye adapts to it so that a white object still looks white. On the other hand, devices such as digital cameras see a white subject as white by first adjusting the color balance to suit the color of the ambient light around the subject. This adjustment is called matching the white balance.

Guide to the number of available frames for battery operation

According to the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards : When using alkaline batteries, use the batteries supplied with the camera. When using Ni-MH batteries, use Fujifilm Rechargeble Battery. The storage media should be xD-Picture Card. h Note: Because the number of available shots varies depending on the capacity of alkaline batteries or the level of charge in Ni-MH batteries, the figures shown here for the number of available shots using batteries are not guaranteed. The number of available shots will also decline at low temperatures.

These specifications are subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting from errors in this Owners Manual. The LCD monitor and viewfinder (EVF) on your digital camera are manufactured using advanced high-precision technology. Even so, small bright points and anomalous colors (particularly around text) may appear on the monitor on the finder. These are normal display characteristics and do not indicate a fault with the monitor on the finder. This phenomenon will not appear on the recorded image. The operation error may be caused in a digital camera by the strong radio interference (i. e. electric fields, static electricity, line noise, etc.). Due to the nature of the lens, the edges of images may appear distorted. This is normal.
